Margherita Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust

My son and I are having a lazy afternoon today. It is a bit cloudy and chilly outside, so I thought it would be nice to just veg out with my little guy. It seems we always have two or three activities planned for every day during the week, and this week is no exception. So, when I figured out that we didn't have to be somewhere this afternoon, I thought a little mommy-son down time would be nice. When we got home from our morning activity/lunch out, we promptly changed back into our comfy clothes (read: jammies) and started our veg-out day. So far, we have played a board game, ate some candy,taken naps, and now we are watching some cartoons while I ignore the laundry that needs to be done. I know...it's hard to be me sometimes. When Daddy gets home we plan on talking him into joining us. I think that today is an excellent day to have a dinner picnic in our living room and watch a movie together. Maybe Toy Story...Finding Nemo is always a classic...who knows.

To go with our movie, I thought the perfect picnic dinner would be homemade pizza. I thought ahead the last time I made pizza and froze enough dough to make one more pie. All I have to do is thaw, rise, top, and bake...and the first two steps just require me to plop the dough into a bowl and leave it alone for a few hours. It's about as easy as you can get! I think I will just go with the classic basil, mozzarella, tomato combo for my favorite Margherita-style pizza. It's totally simple, yet so delicious.

I am really excited for our picnic and movie night!

Who'd you go to lunch with? Was that payback for me not inviting you to Sur la Table yesterday? ;) We just got done watching Nemo. Enjoy your lazy day!!
